The Shire of Montevale is a local group of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. The Shire covers Franklin and Fulton counties in south central Pennsylvania, which makes us part of the East Kingdom.
Yes! We are still holding indoor fighter practices on Friday nights. There will be Fighter Practice on Friday, June 30, and Friday, July 21. Our new location is the Career Magnet School, 2459 Loop Rd Chambersburg, PA 17202, beginning at 6 pm. Because of the school’s activities, we cannot use their gym every Friday, but as the weather gets warmer, we may end up being outside anyway. You can also check our Facebook group “Shire of Montevale” for details!
If you are planning to fight (heavy and/or rapier) at Pennsic, please check the information about Authorization in the Pennsic Book (given out at Troll when you arrive) which is now available as a PDF on line at http://www.pennsicwar.org/penn46/PW46EventGuide.pdf The Authorization information is on page 27 of the PDF. Please check now that your card will not expire before Pennsic and that you know where your card is.

The members of Montevale would love to have you become involved in our shire. You’ll find us to be a very friendly and accepting group of medieval enthusiasts of all ages. If you live anywhere in or near Chambersburg, PA, we invite you to our monthly meetings at the Career Magnet School, 2459 Loop Rd Chambersburg, PA 17202. Our meetings are usually held on the second Friday of the month at the same time as one of our fighter practices, depending on the availability of indoor space at the school. In July our meeting will be on the third Friday, July 21, at 7 pm. If you are already part of another SCA group, you are most welcome at any of our regular activities and at our events.
